Mr. Nilay Mistry,ACE, ISMS LA
Cyber Security and Digital Forensics at
Institute of Forensic Science, Govt. of Gujarat

Today's technology grows its roots in positive and negatives both directions. Cyber criminals are always getting one step ahead than the investigators. Digital forensics in the live environment is the biggest challenge; acquisition of live artifacts on running system needs expertise to achieve expected results. One of the most important areas where every forensicator looks into is Memory, i.e. RAM - Random Access Memory. RAM is a volatile memory, which flushes when system is shut down, or restarts. So before shutting down the system, a Memory dump should be taken. It is a very important aspect for carving information resided into the volatile memory. Here the role of a volatile memory analysis in digital forensics and the importance of the physical memory analysis are proposed and is very useful in real time evidence acquisition analysis. Further we have introduced some of the tools and techniques used in acquisition and analysis of memory.

The future of the world is in my classroom today
